I remember my mates & I being chased through Eldon square on quite a few occasions.
We even used the multi storey carpark as an escape route a few times.
Instead of using the stairwell where we could be trapped & get a right kicking or running down the exit ramps we used to lower ourselves from level to level down the middle often bouncing on car bonnets or [sign in to see URL] shouted at by irrate car owners was a lot less painful than making contact with a Doc Martin Boot. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Re: SHAM ARMY and OTHER GANGS


most of the real icf got into the rave scene mate, basically because there was money to be made(flogging banned substances and ripping off the ravers), personally, i just couldn't really get to grips with any music, and i stayed listening to my blues and soul roots throughout. unfortunately most of the places we went played disco shite, so muscally it wasn't a happy time for me. I never had anything other than a short haircut, although i did let it grow longer up [sign in to see URL] there were a lot of perms about!!!

Re: SHAM ARMY and OTHER GANGS


No mate, I've never really liked that stuff, it's all hammond orientated and I'm a guitar man [sign in to see URL]'t mind hammond stuff but too much bores me.

To be honest, most of the time we were too busy fighting to worry about music.

Sad innit.. emoticon

Re: SHAM ARMY and OTHER GANGS


yer but oxo between the early 80's to the late 80's there must of been something going
on in london in the mid 80's,i mean certain era's mix into new era's i.e. punk to mod, mod to casual9 emoticon ).i think the good,the
bad and the 4-skins album you brought had a good photo on the inner sleeve where there seems to be a bunch of lads who some look like skins and others look like on the verge of casual(and that rockabilly guy).

From my [sign in to see URL] went from punk (76) to Skin (77) to mod (or suede for me!) in [sign in to see URL] that way until about 84 when I went [sign in to see URL] of different routes really but the firm I was in went along that sort of [sign in to see URL] turned casual from about 80s onwards

The firm on the album cover were from Ealing, a mixture of ex-skins,mods,casuals and rockabillys (the Clack Brothers later became paras! )
